Summer Holidays Week 1: Cake Pops

Summer Holidays Week 1: Cake Pops

So the summer holidays have started and as we all know, boredom sets in within about a week. My little one misses nursery terribly – so do I for that matter! – and I’ve had to compile a long list of things to do, indoors […]

Salted Honey Pie

Salted Honey Pie

I know it might seem I’ve gone a bit pie crazy lately; but honestly, in this melting London summer heat, I can’t think of anything I want more (let’s ignore ice-cream for a moment here) than a slice of chilled pie. Especially when it’s drenched […]

Caramelised Orange & Almond Tart

Caramelised Orange & Almond Tart

This tart is the sunniest, juiciest dessert imaginable, and was partly inspired by Nigella Lawson’s caramelised oranges (in ‘Forever Summer’). I was recently daydreaming about a zesty, creamy orange tart – something along the lines of a simplified tart au citron. I searched for something […]

No-Bake Rice Crispy Marshmallow Cake

No-Bake Rice Crispy Marshmallow Cake

Creating the ridiculously delicious – and, unusually, totally vegetarian – Grasshopper Pie was probably my greatest achievement last summer. Since discovering just how easy it is to replace gelatine-filled marshmallows with vegetarian-friendly Marshmallow Fluff (and a bit of tweaking), I was then keen to replicate […]

Chocolate Melting Moments aka YoYo Biscuits

Chocolate Melting Moments aka YoYo Biscuits

I’d forgotten all about these bite-size morsels until last year. During one of our many trips to the theatre to see (the outrageously good) Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, my friend James surreptitiously opened up a Tupperware box full of homemade YoYo biscuits, just as the lights […]

DIY Pop Tarts

DIY Pop Tarts

I was a child of the 80s, when hot buttered toast, drenched in golden syrup, was the norm for breakfast – along with a steaming hot mug of tea. Then out of nowhere, an American ‘breakfast’ hit us like a sugar-crusted bombshell; the Pop Tart […]

Simnel Muffins (Easter Muffins)

Simnel Muffins (Easter Muffins)

I should start this post by freely admitting that I’m neither religious nor a fan of the current, commercially driven Easter celebration. When it comes to this time of the year, I tend to lean towards paganism – I simply enjoy the celebratory feasting and […]

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies (Chewy Soft Bake)

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies (Chewy Soft Bake)

Chocolate chip cookies were my first baking obsession. Thanks to a penchant for Pepperidge Farm Montauk cookies (discovered during a trip to Miami), they were the one thing I really wanted to get to grips with when I first became seriously interested in baking. I don’t […]

Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake

Today is Baking With Honey’s first birthday! I’ve been bursting to share this gorgeous cake recipe with you for a while now, but as it is most definitely a celebratory kind of cake, I wanted to wait for a suitable occasion. (Despite the fact that […]

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I set up this blog. My very first post was for Salted Caramel Brownies – still, I should add, a firm favourite in this house (and blindingly popular elsewhere in every conceivable way, too!) – but […]

Honey Nut Pie

Honey Nut Pie

This sweet and sticky pie came about because I was forever wondering what a pale, alternative version of a pecan pie would look like. I also have an addiction to honey roasted cashews. Once that bag is open, there’s no stopping me. On a recent […]

Welsh Cakes for St David’s Day (Picau ar y Maen am Dydd Gŵyl Dewi)

Welsh Cakes for St David’s Day (Picau ar y Maen am Dydd Gŵyl Dewi)

Making St David’s Day Welsh cakes with my grandmother is one of the few kitchen memories I have of her that doesn’t involve me being actually turfed out of the kitchen. I think an early love of these small, sweetly spiced discs sealed my affection […]
